Could it have something to do with the fact that funds and playing budgets are limited


Is this true, am I the only one who doesn't think the Fearns money and compo has been spent. I am either expecting one stellar or a couple of good players to come and for me, a gain breaking midfielder which we haven't got would be my choice.

Unbelievable!!!! Like kids sometimes. No matter how often you say something someone always misses the point. Look below, a direct statement from DH after Ruan was signed. Very close is NOT complete. Just make things up to suit your own agenda why don't you. :shock: WE WILL BE MAKING OTHER SIGNINGS




Humphreys also said that the club are ‘very close’ to completing their squad for next season and that they are waiting on the arrival of Johan Ackermann before deciding on a new captain.

Personally, I would prefer them to bring a few more younger players through. I am expecting this season to be the first in a new chapter - I don't think we will get much higher than mid-table so there is no better time to develop some of the younger players with first team playing time.

I would have thought that 39 wasn't far off being 'around 40'! At least, it is in my universe!

The Japanese season finishes in early Jan, that would allow anyone coming to play half of our campaign....just a thought

Would rather some solid grafters or youngsters with potential than a "Stella" ex international on a downwards curve. Been there done that too many times.

How about a stellar international on an upward curve, don't think we have done that too many times.

We have loads of grafters, then tend to get us in 9th position.

Yeah but most of those grafters haven't really been up to the standard. Until recently some of our squad would have bearly made championships standard.

Bit harsh !! ;) Plus very damning of the GR management if you really think that.

IMVHO the squad has always had Premiership potential and certainly been on good Premiership wages. They have just failed to play to Premiership standards on a consistent basis. To say "some would have "barely (sp) made Championship standard" is sweeping, ignorant and massively over-critical.

I would just like to see the AP season start !! Thoroughly bored of RTS2's repetitive comments and Baz's know-it-all/insider pomposity......

I remember the days when SW was lovely and quiet for all of July and August. Now everyone is a bleedin' expert !! :( :(
